Lisa Kay Farris, 52, of Sharpsville, passed away at 11:30pm, June 25, 2020, at home where she was surrounded by all her family. She was born on November 27, 1967 to Mark and Pat Spaulding in Kokomo, In. On June 21, 1986, Lisa married her high school sweetheart, Terry Farris. They just celebrated their 34th wedding anniversary.

Lisa was a 1986 graduate of Tri-Central High School. She had worked for Sunset Memory Gardens and for Dr. Jerry Powell, where she was his business manager and became just like family. Most recently, she worked for Riverview Hospital as a systems analyst, where she made so many close bonds and friendships with coworkers and doctors that she supported. These relationships carried over in her treatment of her cancer. Lisa's greatest accomplishments were her two girls, Taylor and Haley. She was always so proud of everything they would do. Lisa's best gift she ever received was on June 6th 2020, when she got to be there for the birth of her grandson, Beckett Miles Smith, which she was known as Gigi.

Lisa is survived by her loving husband of 34 years, Terry; daughter, Taylor (Cody) Smith and baby Beckett; daughter, Haley Farris; her parents, Mark and Pat Spaulding; brothers, Michael Spaulding, Matthew (Jessica Conrad) Spaulding; Gregory Spaulding; mother-in-law, Berniece Farris; nieces and nephews, Brittany, Carter, and Maison; and several aunts and uncles.

She was preceded in death by her father-in-law, Larry Farris; her grandparents and uncles.

The Farris & Spaulding familes continue to be in my thoughts & prayers. In this moment as you celebrate Lisa's life & how much joy she has brought to your own, may your hearts be full & may those memories carry you through.
I will always remember what I believe may have been the first time I met Lisa & Terry...back before they were married. He was wearing a t-shirt that said "Lisa's biggest fan". That is a memory I will always carry of the two of you.
Blessings to you all.

Lisa was such a kind and patient mentor as she helped staff and providers at Noblesville Peds work through the complexities of electronic records.
She was much a positive influence on all, always smiling and supportive.
You are loved and will be missed.

I always loved seeing Lisa at Dr Powell’s office. Prayers covering her family. Beautiful person inside and out. We would laugh so much on the phone. Gone too soon but healed by the blood of Jesus.
